Site background

The Bargate Shopping Centre lies at the heart of the city centre and close to Southampton’s historic walls and the Grade I listed medieval gatehouse from which it takes its name.

The centre itself is over 25 years old and operated as part of the city’s retail sector until it closed in 2013. Everyone knows that the Bargate Centre has been in financial administration for some years and previous proposals did not bring the change that many hoped for. Bargate Property Ltd is now, with the aid of its professional team, considering the opportunities and the challenges that the site presents as it seeks to bring forward a viable set of proposals. Of course, this is all happening against a backdrop of other significant developments taking shape, all of which should help deliver economic, environmental and leisure benefits to the City.
